“For this GoB Honor Roll essay-writing contest, we asked the students to write about how the Epson technology package helped them in their studies.  We were truly inspired by the stories we received from them, motivating us to help more schools under this program, “says Ms. Donna V. Ferro, Head of Marketing Communications and PR, Epson Philippines.

Epson Philippines has just finished awarding a new set of 15 schools last March 2017, bringing the current total of GoB beneficiaries to 45 schools, with another batch for selection within this year.

“We are focusing on selecting schools from areas that have yet to receive a similar donation, and we are working with partners from both the private and government sectors to help us complete this latest batch. We also plan to continue initiating projects like the Honor Roll Essay Writing, so we can inspire the students in their learning journey,” concludes Ms. Ferro.
